A Manifesto and More

This year my word is grace. It is something that I have generously extended to others without judgment, but for some reason not to myself. The past year was difficult and for whatever reason I did not think that I was deserving of grace. That stops right now. I am deserving and I will extend it to myself time and time again without explanation. Even if I need it several times in one day, I deserve it. I am deserve what I desire. End of story. Hard stop.
This quote speaks to me:
“Grace is what picks me up and lifts my wings high above and I fly! Grace always conquers! Be graceful in everything; in anger, in sadness, in joy, in kindness, in unkindness, retain grace with you!”
― C. JoyBell C.
